How does it feel to be recognised as a finalist?
It is truly an honor, a sentiment that resonates deeply within me. The acknowledgment of my efforts in real estate is immensely gratifying, affirming that hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed.

In your eyes, what does it take to be a good property manager?
A proficiency in active listening, adept problem-solving skills, and meticulous organisation coupled with effective time management are the cornerstones of being an exceptional property manager.
How has property management changed over the years, and how do you stay ahead?
The property management sector has undergone a profound shift, with heightened client expectations necessitating instantaneous responses. Embracing technological advancements, from smart devices, property management software to AI, has been pivotal.

Throughout your career, what have been your biggest achievements?
Undoubtedly, being named a finalist for the REB Awards over three consecutive years in different categories stands out. The pivotal decision to transition from corporate life to entrepreneurship and founding my own business is another significant milestone.
